the beautiful 1st Edition handcoloured OS map. Coverage stretches from Clevedon Bay, the pier, and Salthouse Bay eastward to East Clevedon and All Saints church.
Features include Clevedon Bay Pier, Salt House, Hangstone Quarry, Gas Works, railway station, All Saints' Church and Christ Church.
The maps include extracts from early directories on the reverse.
Clevedon is famed most of all for its splendid pier. As a seaside resort it grew between 1850 and 1870 and still
retains some of its genteel atmosphere today. It was also the terminus for two railways, the GWR's Clevedon branch and the
Weston Clevedon & Portishead Light Railway; the GWR terminus is shown on the 1883 map, but the WCPLR station only came in time for the later map.
